Gamme de produits développée pour le Groupe Clarins

Somater is taking part in a new range of products developed for the Clarins Group to mark the 80th anniversary of The Little Prince®.

As part of this partnership, Somater has developed a 200 ml lacquered and labelled rPET flask for Clarins’ Treatment Essence range, inspired by the famous tale. This initiative is part of Clarins’ drive to revitalise its current range by launching a limited edition that incorporates a new design with the iconic image of The Little Prince®, while promoting a circular approach and favouring recycled materials.



Composed of bottles using at least 25% recycled plastic and produced at our Plastuni Normandie site in Hautot-sur-Mer (76), this exclusive collection reflects the Clarins Group’s ongoing commitment to responsible beauty and a desire to offer eco-designed products in order to limit the brand’s environmental footprint.

Somater is proud to support its partner Clarins in this exciting project, highlighting the importance of sustainability and innovation in the cosmetics industry.

Journée mondiale de l’eau 2024

Mindful of our impact on the environment, Somater is actively engaged in the development of responsible industrial resources.

In this World Water Day, we would like to highlight the commitment of our sites to the preservation of this resource.

This is because the polymer transformation process has the advantage of using only a limited amount of water. This water is mainly used to cool our tools and is retained in a closed loop that is reused continuously.

In addition, our sites have complied with the decree on preventing the loss of industrial plastic granules into the environment by 2023. Our teams have taken all the necessary measures, such as setting up containment, recovery and reprocessing systems for granules, and are regularly trained in pollution prevention techniques.

Dépollution Naos

Every year, Somater and the NAOS packaging purchasing teams (Bioderma – Institut Esthederm – Etat Pur) join forces for an environmental initiative.

At the beginning of December, we took part in the clean-up of the Étang de Berre beach in Marignane. The Wings of the Ocean association accompanied us through the various stages: collection brief, sorting and characterisation of the waste, followed by discussions on possible solutions to combat the pollution.

Almost 43kg of waste was collected. A big thank you to Sonia for her guidance and teaching, and to the teams involved in this targeted action!

SOMATER Tube Hyaluron L'Oréal

L’Oréal Paris has extended its Elsève Hyaluron Repulp hair care range, this time with a particular focus on moisturizing and revitalizing serums based on hyaluronic acid of natural origin. For this innovative project, L’Oréal Paris once again called on Somater and Plastuni Lisses (91), the brand’s long-standing supplier.

The objective: to develop an attractive, enhancing and differentiating decor with a laminated tube that will house this top-of-the-range hair care product, preserve its quality and guarantee its safety. The result matches Plastuni Lisses’ expertise in flexography: a marking with “holographic” effect that is as seductive as it is innovative.

Somater, a multi-technology expert in the manufacture of polymer packaging, shows here the extent of its skills in the field of decoration to add value to the brand and win over customers.

label MORE (MOBILISÉS POUR RECYCLER) pour Somater en 2023

Developed by the “Fédération de la Plasturgie et des Composites”, now Polyvia, the MORE label (MOBILISÉS POUR RECYCLER) recognises manufacturers who use recycled polymers in their production processes, thereby helping to reduce their carbon footprint.

Already awarded in the past, Polyvia and European Plastics Converters (EuPC) have just awarded us the MORE2023 label in recognition of our sites’ commitment. We are very pleased with this new recognition, which attests to our commitment as a manufacturer to promote more sustainable consumption, with products that incorporate more and more recycled plastics, and reinforces our objective of reducing the virgin raw materials content of our product portfolio by 50% by 2025.

Nouveau tube Crème change Mustela

Somater has designed a 100% PE tube with a 220/11µ lightened PBL skirt contributing to Expanscience’s commitments as an expert in dermo-cosmetics and a company with a mission, certified B Corp.

Recyclability and lightweighting first and foremost

Somater has been awarded the lightweighting of the Mustela 123 diaper cream tube. The 50 ml, 100 ml and 150 ml formats are now made from a lightweight PBL web, replacing the ABL used until now. In addition to reducing the amount of material used, the switch to PBL significantly improves the recyclability of the packaging thanks to its PE composition.

A circular approach to packaging life

Mustela, a committed brand wishing to contribute to achieving global climate objectives by 2050, eco-designs its products taking into account their life cycle. To this end, the brand is looking for recyclable, lightweight packaging to optimise the formula/material ratio. This lightweight tube, manufactured by Plastuni Lisses in Essonne (91), reduces the plastic content by reducing the thickness of the skirt, while maintaining the barriers needed to preserve the cream. The tube is decorated using flexography.
